At its meeting on Monday 10th December 2018, CovSoc Chairman Paul Maddocks handed over a cheque to Sarah James from Civic Voice to support the campaign to improve the quality of the design of new homes in England.
The Government has set up a Commission called the Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission which is seeking to improve the quality of new housing design in England.
Our umbrella organisation, Civic Voice, is a planning a series of round-table events, parliamentary meetings and a conference, which will be held in the spring to ensure that communities are heard in the Government’s latest review into delivering the homes the nation needs. Civic Voice will be preparing a civic movement report to be submitted to the Commission and our contribution will contribute to the cost of all this work.
With so much new housing development planned for Coventry it is crucial that we secure the very best of design as this hasn’t always been the case in the past.
